Somehow I had forgotten all about this sassy Brit and his way with American girls. Not sure that he’s riding a scooter though? Isn’t that a moped? Help me out here people. According to Wikipedia:
“Swing with Scooter was a DC Comics comicbook published from mid 1966 up to the early 1970s.
The protagonist, Scooter, was a British teenage musician. His nickname came from the scooter that he used as a vehicle. The book was an attempt at drawing upon the teenage light drama market that is usually served by Archie comics and similar titles.”

I am pretty sure this is a very old game (it’s for Windows systems and is just $3-5 on Amazon) but it’s existence is still pretty exciting. Not being a gamer myself, here are the deets according to Amazon.
“It’s scooter racing to the extreme! Deliver death defying stunts in this crash ’em smash ’em action game!

Saving up for a new Vespa has never been easier. The coin slot is behind the seat. Measures 8 1/2″ by 6″ by 4″ and is $16.

My apologies for getting these great finds out after Easter. *cringing shame*
But there is always next year, right? For your post-Easter pleasure we have Snoopy and Woodstock and his weird egg scooter, a preppy scooter riding bunny art print and the Precious Moments bunny-child carefully delivering an egg. Happy (belated) Easter!
(And thanks to Julie G. and Melissa M. for these finds.)
This action figure was released back in 2001-2002 and toy boutique Ninyoushi found one last one in their warehouse. Created by Hong Kong artist, Eric So, it’s a rendition of actor Sam Lee as a vinyl figure. You can pose Sam Lee to stand alone or sit on the scooter as it includes interchangeable legs. Scooter and Sam Lee are both packaged separately in boxes. But come together as a set. They measure approximately 6″ tall. $110.00.
“Lord Dunsby” is a UK based illustrator who has definitely nailed the retro lifestyle aesthetic. His prints are Â£25 and are in A2 Size or for us Yanks approximately 16.54 x 23.39 inches.
From the ultra hip online shop “Girls Can Tell,” Philadelphia artist Sara Selepouchin draws careful but charming diagrams of some of the more fetishized technology like cameras, airplanes and of course two-stroke scooters. Then she carefully screen prints them on a variety of objects. Her scooter design is available on bags, coasters, and even printed on a vintage book page as frameable art.
Thanks to Cassie for these great finds.
NEWS FLASH – Sara got in touch with us and her oven mitt ($14) is no longer out of stock! And it’s available in black and red. See the revised link below:
Alas, no Vespas. Just Lammies. They’re $2.99 a piece from “Farm Fresh Knobs and Pulls.” I think these would look great in a little boy’s room or a big boy’s garage.
